Let’s take some time to think about how culture changes over time. Justin King talks a bit here toward the beginning about White American Southerners who tried to save their culture by moving to Brazil. It didn’t work. They assimilated.
And that’s exactly what happens to people in the European diaspora. Our ancestors might have been European but we are something else.
I’m choosing to link to this particular example because it sets assimilation in a political context rather than a purely esoteric woo-woo land where we might get lost in the glitter.
